Abstract:

Here is the story of Panama, the Canal, and of the man who built it - a great story of adventure and adventurers. As told by Howard Fast, it becomes the saga of the men who went down to the Isthmus to conquer it, explorers, Spanish Dons, pirates, gold hunters, and lastly engineers. How they fought and worked and dreamed, and how finally their dreams came true in the completed "big Ditch" makes as fascinating a tale as any piece of fiction.
